With this Bling…

26 Sep

With this Bling…I thee wed! Check out these fun little “BLING” stickers by Nail Bliss that I picked up from Sally’s. You can glam up the entire hand or add an accent finger or two. I chose to cute a few pieces of the stickers to keep this from being too busy. The base color is “Platinum Silver” by China Glaze.

I’ll describe this as a gradient half-fish egg caviar looking manicure! FUN. FUN. FUN. Would your rock it or knock it?

Cuticle Remover

19 Sep

I can’t remember who to thank for this wonderful recommendation. This Sally Hansen instant cuticle remover is the TRUTH and it does what it says it will do. I picked it up from Target this past weekend.

Like most products, you yield the best results when you follow the directions. I recommend that you follow these simple directions for this product I’ll be adding this to my arsenal of nail goodies.

Have any of you tried this?

Hello Holo!

12 Sep

Holo, Holo and mo’ Holo! I love holographic nail polish. Initially I missed the “buffing step” and wasn’t sure how I felt about the application.

Now, I know what I’m doing! So, hello holo. It’s nice to really meet you.

I used Orly Decoded for the base. The holographic nail polish is Mermaid Spell by Layla Cosmetics. It’s available at Ulta.

Cheetah nails!

10 Sep

Cheetah nails are everywhere. Today’s manicures are getting more creative and even cuter. I opted for Cheetah nails with a side of bling.

For this look, I took a shortcut by using nail stickers from Kiss Nail Products. These are called Princess and they come with a little bling. I started with a base color of “Mutual Consent” by Jordana. I only used (2) stickers out of the pack of 26 so I’m really stretching my polish resources. I’m not kidding when I say use it all…down to the last drop.

Nude but not Naked

28 Aug

I started blogging in January of this year. It marked the beginning of some of my wild and crazy nail art designs. I’ve been rather conservative in the past. So THIS is a new “nail chapter”.

I decided to go retro and have naked nails to start the work week. It’s rare to catch me without ail polish on. After a little fresh air for my nails, I transitioned from naked natural nails to nude nails. This soft and sheer color is feminine and chic and ultra conservative. This basic color won’t last long but I’m enjoying it!

Channel Orange

22 Aug

What am I listening to? Frank Ocean! His new album, Channel Orange is truly MUSIC to my ears. Urban ears actually. These headphones were made for good music.

Have you heard this artist and album? If so, what’s your favorite song or verse?
